Spot on. Adding the type attribute fixed it, I wasn't even aware of
the possible use of that attribute for link tags to stylesheets.

The validator doesn't seem to be bothered about the './' in the links,
but thanks Steve for the suggestion.

It seems they must uploaded a new validator, because not only has that
all changed without my having done anything, but by default I now get
a load of warnings [1] that I didn't get before.

And wheras I used to get a warning about overflow-y [2] not being
valid for CSS 2.1, it was only a warning before, whereas it is now by
default an error unless I specify profile=css3.

I guess I'm going to have to either server up different css to IE, or
find some other work around.

Thanks very much all, its lovely to have all [3] my tests passing again :-)


[1] All background-color not specified.
[2] I use overflow-y to avoid an IE scrollbar oddidty.
[3] Well, all of the ones in my control.
